Review:: Be A Bombshell….Lash Out Mascara

PicMonkey Collage

I received a full size mascara in my Birchbox and my Ipsy bag this month.  I love me some mascara so I was excited to try both of them out.  First off this mascara has a horrible smell, I mean like really really bad.  I debated even using it but I figured what wouldn’t hurt and hopefully I wouldn’t smell it on my eyelashes.

No Mascara, it is looking mighty scary!!

One coat on the left eye, no mascara on the right.  I don’t think this picture really shows it well but with one coat all this really did was coat my lashes.  There was a little definition but not any volume and not much curl.

Whoo Hoo now both eyes have a smelly mascara coating…

And with two coats on the right eye, you really can’t tell much of a difference.  If you read my post on the Mally volumizing mascara that I got in my Birchbox, there was a huge difference between one and two coats.

So… Finally verdict?  Not worth the $15.00  The smell is enough not to repurchase but I felt like this mascara ‘coated’ my lashes.  There was a little definition, but no volume or length added.

Review:: Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara

 If you read my post on Monday about my June Birchbox you will know I received a Mally mascara.  I have never used anything from this brand so I was super excited to give it a try, and you all know I love me some mascara.   

Lets take a look at what my lashes look like without mascara so we can see if this will really make a difference.

It is hard to see in the above picture but I promise I have a few eyelashes!

Ok this is a better picture.  As you can see in the first picture, my lashes are straight and stick out, not a lot of curl so its hard to see them looking straight on.

Alright as you can see there is a little more definition but not a lot of curl.

Now we are getting somewhere!  The second coat give me a lot more volume and also a bit of lift.

Wow, can you tell the difference between one and two coats of this stuff? Ready for a better picture to really show the difference?

And do you notice my lashes don’t look clumpy? I really think I could have gone for coat three and been alright.  I wore this mascara for over nine hours and did not notice any flaking or smudging  and the mascara doesn’t have a funny smell like some tend to. This is a win for me, this was worth my whole Birchbox!!
